Thai anti-government protesters stage a sit-in at Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok on Tuesday night. Rampaging protesters forced the closure of the airport as the second day of demonstrations in Bangkok descended into violence. Thousands of supporters of the People's Alliance for Democracy breached police lines and stormed the key Asian transport hub in their effort to pressure the premier to resign. "I decided to shut down services after the protesters broke the door on the fourth floor of the terminal and stormed into the departure lounge," airport director Saereerat Prasutanont said.
